Win over £7,000 of business support

There’s still time to win over £7,000 of expert business support

If you’re a budding entrepreneur based in Sussex, then our new business initiative could be the boost your business is looking for.

Back in September, we joined forces with Horsham newspaper The District Post, marketing agency PMW Communications, and local accountants and business advisors Kreston Reeves, to launch Ignition, a brand-new scheme designed to provide more than £7,000 worth of support and mentorship to local start-up businesses.

Now there are just weeks left to enter the competition, with entry closing at midnight on Tuesday 31st December.

To qualify, applicants must have a business that’s been operating for 24 months or less, or be planning to start one in the near future. The top entrants who make it through the initial application stage will be invited to a Dragon’s Den-style pitch meeting, where they’ll need to convince a panel of business leaders to back their enterprise.

The winner will receive free expert advice and services from the Ignition partners, including the following:

  • Tailored business advice from our Managing Director
  • A free advert in The District Post
  • Help with logo/brand design, thread, strategy, and two designed adverts from marketing agency PMW Communications
  • Two day ‘Brand DNA workshop’ to help you and your business’s growth plan and 4 x two-hour quarterly mentoring sessions to review, revise and progress your growth plan from Kreston Reeves growth advice team

The services on offer would usually cost you well over £7,000, making this an unmissable opportunity for start-up business owners looking to get their company off to a flying start without impacting their budget.
